There are 4-5 words written in Greek that goes around the rim of the wooden/gold emblem in Remake. I was wondering if anyone has translations of these as I am curious as to what is probably the motto of the Spencer family. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I asked this a while back on PU. It's either "Where there is life, there is hope." or "Where there is hope, there is life."

Much obliged. I have been curious about this since 2002. That saying fits in really nice with the other descriptions around the mansion about life and death.

SamuraiEdge could you please post an image of the emblem in this thread, as the importance of getting a native of the language concerned to provide a definitive answer is often proved to be imperative. Yuki, our site translator, a native Japanese lady, has many times shown up disparities and even sometimes errors with other Resident Evil sites translations, particularily those done by students to Japanese, for whom it is not their first language; moreover it is a complex one they have been learning a mere few years. An example among many is for the Bio Hazard novel バイオハザード 北海の妖獣 which was originally translated on another Resident Evil site as Biohazard : Strange Beast of the North Sea, and then later ammended to Biohazard : The Wicked North Sea. Both translations are unfortunaltly erroneous. The correct translation is Bio Hazard: The Phantom Beast of the North Sea.


So it may be useful to upload the emblem here, and I'll have a native to Greece cast a quick eye over it !

I sadly can't take my own photo as I do not have a camera or a phone to take pictures so I will use a picture from the Resident Evil Wiki. Also I own that novel you mentioned and I am patiently and eagerly awaiting a full translation of it.


EDIT: Found a better picture but it seems to block out more characters for some reason.

I took this from a snapshot of the HD 1080 60fps footage but it offers no more assistance... going to need a Greek translator!

Figured this was going to be a hard one. Sorry about that George Trevor. Hoping "Where there is life, there is hope." or "Where there is hope, there is life." is accurate since I rather liked that.

The font is called "Symbol", and it comes standard with windows. It's not Greek, each symbol represents a letter in the alphabet. Project Omega figured it out and posted the translation on THIA years ago. One of the gravestones behind the mansion also reads, "Capcom".

Vaugley remember seeing this on THIA now, forgot all about the one with CAPCOM on it. I miss those little touches they used to do, dont seem to get that sort of thing in the newer games.
